An Ancient/Modern House in an Italian Olive Grove

November 16, 2012

Located in the middle of an olive grove in the Apulia region of southeast Italy, a simple stone and plaster house combines ancient elements (limestone rocks excavated on the premises) and modern forms (geometric forms and contemporary glass windows).

To see more, go to Luca Zanaroli.
